    Nah; I looked at it in TV shows and assumed RWD.

    Then when this thread said it was a "cheap alternative" and I knew it was American (they love their FWD's) & made by the same company that makes a Jeep Compass, I assumed FWD.

    Soft roaders represent an excellent compromise between the needs of the hardcore 4x4 user and the convenience of a city hatchback. Its clear to see why they have become so popular in todays society.

    I saw one of these in the states and couldn't figure out why you would do it.

    5.3 litre LS V8 in a FWD Impala.



    So chances are if they bring that bucket of poo over here it can be a SS option for little outlay of engineering.

    The impala uses the 3.6 Alloytec. The twin turbo version of this engine will slot into that chassis (AWD).

    Well Fords are, it's a family look thing ... I've forgotten whether they still own Aston (I doubt it given that they sold everything else).

    They only have about a 10% stake in Aston these days.
    If in doubt power out

    i like the current one more, this one has lot some of the traditional mustang styling cues

    dash looks the same which is good

    but who can honestly complain about a 3,300lb or 1.5 ton rwd sports coupe w/ manual that seems to have a good 4 cyl. and v8

    makes GM look stupid for not having the camaro here

    Ford doesn't have the Mustang here ...
    GM may bring the Camaro in, in 2015, to replace the Commodore, in the same way & for the same reason as Ford is bringing the Mustang in 2015 to replace the Falcon.

    We will never get the current camaro here. We will need to wait until it moves off the current platform.

    Given it's as old as VE, that's got to be soon?

    *edit*
    Yeah, 2016 apparently ... which, given the American approach to model naming, is probably next month.

    It's taken a lot of styling cues from the old Giugiaro Mustang concept. I think it looks good, the rear diffuser shouldn't be body colour though.
    It's a pretty radical departure from the last 8 years of solid '67-70 retro styling, so it will take some getting used to.

    By the time it comes for it to lob here the AUD will be well under USD0.90
    People will whinge that its all a conspiracy and the high price is because of local manufacturer subsidies... oh wait!

    It's probably as accurate as you can get for something not released for over a year; ie. even if 100% accurate in terms of current intentions, all sorts of shit can change between now & then.

    Anyhoo, the info I though was interesting:
    (*) 230 killerwasp 2.3L turbo to be $45k
    (*) no V6 for Oz 'cos 4cyl faster & cheaper & more thrifty
    (*) V8 at $50k
    (*) Boss 302 version at $60k
    (*) top spec supercharged version at $85k
    (*) the 2.3 being developed initially for the upcoming Focus RS (which makes me think it may be a bit weak compared to the last RS - more weight & barely more power)

    So they're putting the turbo version a tad above the not-super-hot hot-hatches like Golf GTI; which sorta makes sense, it's RWD but being Ford US it won't feel as upmarket as a GTI.
